Inspiration

This was read to me after the end of a great work out at Yoga to The People.
This really hit home. I've been searching for alot of answers that I can't see to figure out.
When I can't figure something out it's like I come to a complete stop.
I obsess over the question(s) and the answer(s). Which ofcoure stops me from actually living and experiencing life it self...


from "Letters to a Young Poet"
by Rainer Maria Rilke


I want to beg of you much as I can to be patient
toward all that's unsolved in your heart,
and learn to love the questions themselves,
like locked rooms, or like books that are
written in a very foreign tongue.

Do not seek the answers, which cannot be given you,
because you would not be able to live them,
and the point is to live everything.

Live the question now,
perhaps you will then, gradually, without noticing it,
live along some distant day into the answer.
